Currently its configured that way.  Unfortunately, I cant change it
right now - so you wont be able to try it out with a given username. 
But according to my implementation, if the client sends something as
part of the response, i'm picking that up as the username.

But as Ralph said, the flow might (should) be different.  Whatever the
JEP says, we would do it that way.
